  2. To book an appointment, stop by HSS 348 or call us during our hours.

  3. During your first tutoring appointment, you and your tutor will have a short 10-15 minute interview so we can find out more about the kind of help you need and how we can best support you.

Please feel free to call us at 338-1993 if you have questions or need help.

Types of Tutoring We Offer

Weekly Individual and Group Appointments

Weekly appointments are 50-minute sessions scheduled every week at the same time with the same tutor.  Students who sign up for weekly writing tutoring during our early registration period the first two weeks of the semester can register for one unit of credit.  

One Time and Same Day Appointments

We have one-time tutoring appointments open on our schedule that you can reserve the same day or during the current week. You may telephone or walk in to reserve a tutoring slot for the same day.

Online Appointments

We offer a limited number of on-line appointments for some classes as long as you have a computer and a wi-fi connection.  Please call or talk with us in person to see if this is the right option for you.  Before you meet online with an LAC tutor, you will need to set up a Zoom account, available to all SFSU students.
